The menu at Sichuan River is big, spanning just about everything from Chinese-American staples like General Tso's chicken, to Sichuan-style classics like mapo tofu and dry stir-fried green beans. We love the mouth-numbing Chong Qing Mala Chicken here as much as anything, but the Dan Dan noodles come in at a close second. Portions here tend to be large, so plan your meal - and fridge space for leftovers - accordingly.
